If you’re wondering “is there going to be a crowd?” The beach directly in front of the property is not on a private beach, typically frequented by those staying in the immediate area. Further down the road travelers do pull over to enjoy the bay and head onto the end of the road and trail head to the Napali coast. Outside of summer months, it’s even more tranquil, making the beaches all the more desirable…locals know this place as a very special place and just around the bend is a place referred to as baby beach. The property is located in between some of the most spectacular beaches in all of Hawaii: Lumihai Beach, Hanalei Bay, and Tunnels Beach, Haena Beach and Ke’e Beach to the West, and heading East Anini Beach, Kalihiwai Beach and Rock Quarry Beach.
When the trade winds pick up, one can indulge in Wind Surfing Sports or for those of you who enjoy watching these activities, a short walk down the beach is home to some of the best kite board sailing grounds in Hawaii. If surfing is what you’re after, Tunnels Beach, a world-renowned surf spot, with some of the best surf on the planet, is 3 minutes north.
Fishing Kauai offers both saltwater and freshwater shore fishing, with plentiful streams and reservoirs, according to Hawaii Beachcombers, an online recreational information resource for the Hawaiian Islands. Groups of people standing waist-deep in the blue waters of Kauai with simple bamboo rods are a common sight.
Types of Fish Kauai waters are teeming with fish, including peacock bass, largemouth and smallmouth bass, channel catfish and bluegills, according to a Fine Fishing article. People shore fishing in Kauai may also land rainbow trout from the rainforest, or trout at Kauai’s Kokee Public Fishing Area. Hawaiians fish the beach with nets and casting rods for Papio and Ulua. If you enjoy fishing and good eating, give it a try and have fun directly out front. You can pick up tackle in Lihue or Hanalei. Not all fish caught from shore are edible. Bonefish; for example, should be tossed back to sea. Buying an inexpensive fish identification chart, and keeping landed fish chilled in an ice cooler, are recommended. Permits Hawaii requires people to obtain fishing licenses only if they are fresh water fishing, according to Kauai Discovery, a online information resource for Kauai recreation. These are valid for one year and may be obtained through the State Division of Aquatic Resources. Sea turtles, Hawaiian monk seals and live coral are protected species, according to Wildernet.
Snorkeling Calling all Snorkelers, this is what you been dreaming of… clear, pristine waters, a variety of colorful fish. On any given day you can encounter turtle’s, spinner dolphins, whale watching, and the occasional Monk seal. This is a secret location, don’t tell anyone, but our front yard boasts some of the best snorkeling in all of Kauai. You can also snorkel just down the road at Tunnels beach, and the end of the road (expect crowds in summer months). Research water safety with all travelers in your group, prior to arriving on island. Understanding tides and currents and what to do and not to do, is just good policy to keep you safe when entering waters on any island. There’re many resource materials on water safety available on the internet and YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3adu6_k1W9A
Visit the island of Kauai and walk along Hanalei Bay. Walk along the two-mile beach, or take a kayak out and snorkel along the sea floor near the beach. On Kauai’s north shore, go to Tunnels Beach. A nearby reef makes this spot prime for shell hunting. According to local lore, this area was the source of the first puka shell necklace. If searching the waters in winter, use caution: The area has strong tides during winter. Travel to Oahu and join other sunrise searchers scouring the beaches for shells, or go to Hawaii and search along Hapuna Beach for both coral and shells. Examine the rocky area along the southern tip of the beach. Research what shells are endangered http://traveltips.usatoday.com/collect-shells-hawaii-beaches-108067.html
